'Flow through a Treadle Valve' simulation project by sjoshi


I created a new simulation project called 'Flow through a Treadle Valve':

This project simulates the flow of air through an open Treadle Valve.

More of my public projects can be found here.


This simulation models the flow of air through an open Treadle Valve used in air-brakes. The geometry was constructed using a CAD Model of a ball valve (courtesy of Christian - GrabCAD). The flow field was then extracted and uploaded as geometry input to the platform. Meshing was done using snappyHexMesh with approximately 2700000 volume elements.

Velocity and pressure have been visualized, and allow for a detailed analysis of flow patterns.
